As most of you know by now, I am not a big fan of the republican party. I didn't like Reagan, Bush Sr. or W. In fact I am amazed that I liked Abe Lincoln. If you didn't know he was a republican. I did not vote for Insane McCain or Mitt "Nit Wit" Romney. I voted for our current president, Barack Obama. I thought he was the best person other than Hillary Clinton to get us out of this mess the republicans left us in. However, after reading this story from the Mr. Conservative web site I am beginning to wonder? This was sent to me by our conservative republican friend Chris "Strawberry" Fields.
$7 BILLION of our tax dollars will be sent to Africa.
The new expenditure was announced by President Obama on Sunday,
during his vacation to Africa at the University of Cape Town in South
Africa. During his announcement, the president said the US needs to “up
our game” when it comes to Africa. Well, $7 billion is certainly stepping up our game…
Obama said America will be spending this money to give electric power to Africans. “My own nation will benefit enormously if you reach your full
potential,” Obama said. Well, isn’t that a convenient way to spin it,
Mr. President. During the speech he introduced the $7 billion “Power Africa”
initiative. Two-thirds of the people living in sub-Saharan Africa do not
have electricity, according to Gayle Smith, Obama’s senior director for
development and democracy.
Six countries will be the primary targets: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya,
Liberia, Nigeria and Tanzania.
George W. Bush also supports such
programs throughout Africa, and will be in Tanzania next week. The White
House did not deny that the two might connect in the continent at some
Obama also spoke about starvation in Africa. He said he’d like to see
the US become more involved in food and health programs in the
continent. The week-long trip to Africa is Obama’s most lengthy trip to the
continent since becoming president. He will not, however, be paying a
visit to Kenya, where his father is from.
Chris's propaganda machine has been in full swing over the past few months. If you read the article you would have noticed that one of your "MAIN MEN" George W. supports this program. He is even going to make a visit to Tanzania next week in support of the U.S. getting more involved with helping Africa.
I have two thoughts on this, first is our country cannot afford to just hand over $7,000,000,000 to anyone. We need to start worrying about ourselves for a change. However, I think there is an alternative motive here. Northern Africa is infested with terrorists and extremists who hate the United States. By making good with South Africa, we can eventually place military bases or intelligence outposts there so we can keep a close eye on these maniacs in the north. Build up the love and then take advantage of them until they turn on you. AH, the American way.
